The Temper Trap @ Dirty Dog, SXSW 2009 day 1 by musicmule.co.uk

mp3: The Temper Trap – Science Of Fear

The Temper Trap were the best band I saw yesterday amongst some stiff competition. From Melbourne these guys play big rock songs that could equally fit in an arena (I’m thinking more Brixton Academy than Wembley but who knows) or in a smaller art rock venue. Lots of guitars (three at some points) pounding drums and a frontman (Dougy) with a great voice and a great presence. He looks nothing like what I imagined but that’s a good thing I think. I didn’t really get the TV On The Radio comparisons before seeing them live but they’ve got the same vibe. I love TVOTR and now I love The Temper Trap. I feel very privileged to have seen ‘Sweet Disposition’ played live. Happy days!

For Fans Of: TV On The Radio, The Rapture, good U2.
